By Simon Dunstan
The last in a four-part series on British Battle Tanks covering the whole history of British armoured warfare. This book covers the vehicles that have served following the end of World War II to 2016.
This book examines the types of tanks that lined up on the German plains to resist any potential Soviet offensive. It talks of the Centurion, Chieftain and Conqueror. As well as modern tanks still in use today such as the Challenger 2. It will talk of deployments of British tanks around the world, including Afghanistan.
I can't put this down. This is a well written and well researched book that can be used as reference book or just for those with a casual interest as to the route British Armour took after The Second World War. I'll be honest and say I knew almost nothing about British Tanks between 1946 and around 1984, this fills so many gaps for me and in a way I just want to learn more.
